Zombie Invasion: Do Zombies Pee and Poop?

Any zombie fan is gonna wonder - do zombies pee and poop? I mean, think about it, all zombies do is eat and eat and eat, right?

Some people conclude that zombies pee, or at least, poop. Some conclude zombies chew, but don't actually eat.

I'm going to accept the answer that is found in The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead, that zombies don't have the digestive system that living humans have, and if any human matter enters their systems, it just sits there. It will accumulate and cause an extended belly overtime, and if there's too much accumulation, the matter will burst through the zombie's anus or stomach. But that doesn't stop a zombie, it will just keep seeking human flesh until some lucky human "kills" it or it "dies" on its own or wears out - so to speak.

Zombie Invasion: 'Night of the Living Dead'

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/p/a-to-z-challenge-sign-uplist-2014.html

http://tashasthinkings.blogspot.co.uk/


If I could point to one movie responsible for igniting my interest in zombies, that movie is the classic Night of the Living Dead.

The 1968 Night of the Living Dead, directed by George Romero and written by Romero and John Russo, takes place during a "zombie apocalypse" where a group of people are forced together in a farmhouse in rural Pennsylvania. The main characters are a white woman (Barbra) and a black man (Ben) which must have been quite the culture shock during that era of prejudice.

Also in the house are a group of people in the cellar (Harry, Helen, and their daughter Karen, plus teenage couple Tom and Judy.) The people get together, but hardly get along. Eventually, their internal conflicts cause the house to be overrun by the undead.


Interesting Fact #1: The zombies in this movie don't actually pose much of a threat to the people inside the house. They are slow moving, mindless, and have no weapons. Instead, it is the group of individuals who were forced together in the farmhouse that are the "enemy," the zombies simply keep them there. There were internal conflicts, arguments over plans, and just an inability to get along.

Interesting Fact #2: This movie gave birth to five other Romero films. Their titles are Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead and Survival of the Dead.

Interesting Fact #3: Did you know that many of the zombies in Night of the Living Dead were friends and acquaintances of George Romero? It's true! Some were people he knew in advertising. Some others were locals (residents of Evans City) who thought it would be fun to get all dressed up and take part in George's movie. Do you think any of them knew (or even had an idea) at the time how famous Night of the Living Dead would become?

Zombie Invasion: 'Land of the Dead'

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/p/a-to-z-challenge-sign-uplist-2014.html

http://tashasthinkings.blogspot.co.uk/


Land of the Dead is a film by George Romero that is the 4th installment of the Living Dead franchise. Two rivers and an electric barricade come into play during this thrilling cinematic adventure. Dennis Hopper puts on a good performance as the city’s ruler, Paul Kaufman. He has a defense vehicle - Dead Reckoning - that helps him deal with the zombies. It is used to secure supplies from locations that were destroyed by the zombies. One of the main zombies they come across is Big Daddy, played by Eugene Clark. Another key character in the story is Cholo DeMora, played by John Leguizamo who is also responsible for operating the Dead Reckoning vehicle. There is a point in the movie in which Big Daddy is able to circumvent the threat of the river water and this leads to intense scenes throughout the rest of the film.
